between president obama and mitt romney. the candidates will take questions from uncommitted voters-- 82 of those voters will be on the stage behind me. can the president use this stage to bounce back from what he admits was a bad night at the first debate. a night that turned out to be a game changer. after that first debate, the race went from dead even to a slight but steady lead for governor romney-- though within the margin of error. but now have a look at this. the latest gallup poll out today shows he has opened a four-point lead over the president, 50% to 46%. that is outside the margin of error. so a small but genuine and growing lead. and this was surprising today. gallup shows that in the tossup states that are likely to tip the balance, romney has cut deeply into one of the president's major strengths. he still trails mr. obama among women, but now by just a single point. we'll see if later polls bear that out. we have a team of campaign 2012 correspondents covering the debate and we're going to go first to jan crawford with the romney campaign. >> reporter: well, scott,
